I'm into a bit of this and a bit of that...

MD, author, speaker, entrepreneur, investor, advocate, Charity Chair.
As managing director at graduate recruitment and employability consultancy SRS, I am known as a recruitment and employability expert. 

I've worked with employers such as M&S, JP Morgan, Expedia and AXA to design and deliver their graduate recruitment campaigns. SRS is also the leading provider of assessment-centre simulations for universities and has trained over 30,000 students at these events. 

I have been a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development since 2013 and was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts in 2019. My first book, From Learner To Earner was published in August 2019, becoming a best seller in October. My best-selling second book, The Ambition Accelerator was published in February 2021 and includes advice from Dragons’ Den star Sara Davies and The Apprentice’s Linda Plant. A podcast accompanies The Ambition Accelerator and includes interviews with the women included in the book. 

A multi award-winning businesswoman and proud mum, I also enjoy supporting the North East region. I'm a huge supporter of Northern Power Women and co-founder of City Ladies Networking. I am Chair of Smart Works Newcastle and Vice Chair and HR Lead on the Board of Age UK Northumberland.
